I'm in the other camp. 21s and 22s ruin the car IMO. 20s seem best.

I normally would keep this opinion to myself but since this is posted by a vendor I'm not so worried about crushing feelings.

How far can I drive after I got the engine oil level low warning?

Why don't you check the level and top it off? You have a dipstick. No need to go to dealer for that.

I'm not sure if you're having it serviced in San Jose or in Monterey, but I would switch dealers at this point. Sometimes a fresh pair of eyes for a persistent problem will yield better results.
